Abstract: To live peacefully in this world of danger and uncertainty, courage is prerequisite. There are two way to meet the danger: one, remain indifference to danger and two, prepare and motivate yourselves through knowledge and training and face the danger head-on. Technology is a double-edged weapon, which can used for both constructive as well as destructive work. Cyberterrorism is the fine example of destructive use of technology, which is posing threat to humanity. To defeat your enemy, first you know your enemy well. So, the aim of this paper is to understand the concept of cyberterrorism, its effect on the world community including India and how to counter this menace. Digital world is being exploited by the terrorist’ organisations for radicalisation, recruitment, propaganda, fundraising, training, etc. These organisations use the darknet to carry out terrorist activities so not visible on the public platform. Time plays the biggest role in any combat and certainly it has greater significance when countering cyberterrorism wherein technology is changing very fast. This paper will also discuss the possible defences available against the cyberterrorism.

Keywords: Terrorism, Cyberterrorism, Cyberattacks, Radicalisation, Digital Infrastructure, Use of Internet by terrorists and other criminals.
